After winning big with both the original Spider-Man trilogy and a series of underground poker games that turned him into a multi-millionaire, star Tobey Maguire has remained quite selective when it comes to chosing his next role. So you know Pawn Sacrifice must be something very special to bring the actor out of his semi-retirement.
